About the Musical: Synopsis

Cast Type:

Ensemble Cast―Many featured roles, showcases dancers

A Pop/Rock Musical in Two Acts
Washed up on the shores of West Africa, an infant boy is taken in and raised by gorillas who name him TARZAN. Apart from striving for acceptance from his ape father, Tarzan's life is mostly monkey business until a human expedition treks into his tribe's territory and he encounters creatures like himself for the first time. Tarzan struggles to navigate a jungle, thick with emotion as he discovers his animal upbringing clashing with his human instincts.
Based on Disney's epic animated musical adventure and Edgar Rice Burrough's Tarzan of the Apes, TARZAN features heart-pumping music by rock legend Phil Collins and a book by Tony Award winning playwright, David Henry Hwang. High-flying excitement and hits like the Academy Award winning "You'll Be in My Heart" as well as "Son of Man" and "Two Worlds" make TARZAN an unforgettable theatrical experience.
